User comments for Keiko (Usage Only)

This must be a unisex name, because Keiko the orca was male.

No. It's definitely a feminine name.

It can also mean "joy child" or "grace child" or "revelation child" or "the beginning/opening of a letter child" or numerous other things. In the generations before me, this was an EXTREMELY common name (I know lots of Keikos).

As for being a unisex name, I can't speak for other languages, but no Japanese in their right minds would name their boys Keiko unless maybe they wanted him to get beat up or something. It's a very feminine name in Japanese.

Keiko was given to 13 girls in America in 2015, possibly because of Japanese descent.
